Alderman McDonough moved to adopt said resolu- 
tion. 

Alderman Coughlin moved to amend said resolution 
by striking out the words, "The Corporation Counsel, 
or his designated representative, shall have the right 
to a seat on the rostrurn.", from that portion of said 
resolution designated as "Rule 7", and by inserting in 
lieu thereof the words "Members of the Mayor's Cabi- 
net shall have the right to a seat on the rostrum." 

Alderman Arvey moved to lay on the table the motion 
to amend. 

The motion to lay on the table prevailed, by yeas and 
nays as follows:

tee of the City Council shall be deferred, for final action 
thereon, to the next regular meeting of the same after

April 3, 1929. 

Board of Aldermen, City of Chicago, Chicago, III.: 

Gentlemen — At the time of the great municipal 
banquet tendered to Col. Charles A. Lindbergh, I 
had the honor of presenting to the City of Cliicago 
a high intensity beacon of the largest candle power 
yet produced. Since this time I have followed with 
great interest the progress of the matter in the 
various committees of your honorable body to which 
it has been entrusted, and I have been impressed 
with your apparent inability as yet to appropriate 
the requisite funds for the construction and main- 
tenance of this light. 

While I have regretted profoundly this situation, 
I have understood generally the conditions which 
have brought it about. As the matter has been de- 
layed so long since the donation was made to the 
City, I herewith desire to advise that I have taken 
steps to place the light with the Palm Olive people 
on their great building occupying a very desirable 
location on North Michigan avenue. It has always- 
been my personal preference that this great beacon 
should be located on the Lake Shore at about the 
right distance from the Air Port being constructed 
in the lake south of the Field Museum. 

The Colgate-Palm Olive Co. have given me their 
assurance that they will not only bear the quite 
large expense of the construction of the tower and 
the completion of the beacon, but also guarantee to 
maintain the light in operation throughout the year. 
This operation will of course be in strict accord- 
ance and co-operation with the City of Chicago and 
the Government requirements. 

Hoping that this adjustment of the matter wuU 
aid in the early realization of the City's express de- 
sire to have this beacon placed in full operation as 
soon as possible, and that it will thus meet with 
the City's approval, I beg to remain. 



Respectfully, 



(Signed) 



Patrick Sheridan Smith,

In the Matter of House Bill 427. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion, which was, together with the copy of the Bill 
transmitted therewith, referred to the Committee on 
Judiciary and Special Assessments: 

Department of Law, 
Chicago, April 11, 1929. 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Dear Sir — We send herewith copy of House Bill 
427 which was introduced in the House of Repre- 
sentatives on behalf of the City of Chicago on March 
19, 1929. 

It was considered desirable about that time that 
the duties of the corporation counsel should be more 
specifically defined in the statutes than they are at 
present. Therefore, a bill was prepared amending 
Section 7 of Article 12 of the Cities and Villages 
Act, otherwise frequently spoken of as the "Little 
Charter". 

Just about the time that we were ready to present 
it, the City Treasurer spoke to the writer in re- 
gard to making some changes with relation -to city 
depositaries. He wanted the statutes changed so 
that it would not be necessary to attach a warrant 
to every check that went through his office, and 
which would legalize the practice that has prevailed 
there for many years of drawing a warrant for the 
whole amount that is presented from day to day, 
such amount being made up of many checks. He^ 
also wanted to have a provision which confined the 
bids of depositaries to National and State banks 
doing business within the city altered so that New 
York banks could bid on the money of the city to 
be deposited. 

We prepared an amendment to Section 5 of Article 
12 for this purpose, and deemed it advisable to 
combine this with the amendment to Section 7 that 
we had ready. It so happened that this was on 
March 19, 1929, which was the day specified by 
the rules of the General Assembly as the last day 
on which Bills could be filed without obtaining un- 
animous consent. We therefore decided to have 
the Bill introduced, and to submit it to your honor- 



April 18, 1929.

able body after its introduction, in order that it 
would not be possible for one member to prevent 
its being introduced at a later time. 

We are, therefore, submitting the Bill to you for 
your consideration, and would be glad to have you 
advise us as to" the attitude of your honorable body 
towards same.

In the Matter of Legislation Affecting the City of Chi- 
cago Introduced in the 56th General Assembly. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tions, which were, together with the copies of the Bills 
transmitted therewith, referred to the Committee on 
Judiciary and Special Assessments: 

Department op Law, 
Chicago, April 8, 1929. 

To the Honorable the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — Since making our last report the 
following bills which affect the City of Chicago, as 
a municipality, have ben introduced: 

senate bills. 

270. Publication of State Pay Rolls. This re- 
quires State officers and directors of departments 
to file list of all employees, showing their names, 
positions and salaries, and certain other details. It 
requires a compilation and publication of same. It 
is a substitute for Senate Bill 167 which we have 
'already reported on. It affects the City of Chicago 
only in that it will probably be used as a reason 
for requiring similar publication on its part; 

271. This bill provides for the appointment of 
the Sanitary District Trustees by the Governor. It 
has no direct effect upon the City of Chicago's in- 
terests; 

273. Amendment to the Motor Vehicle Law which 
will permit higher rates of speed than at present; 

276. This bill provides for a tax to be known as 
the Grade Separation tax designed to meet the City's 
share of expense incident to separation of railroad 
and street grades. This tax is to be levied not to 
exceed ten years and must not exceed one cent on 
the dollar of assessed valuation. Ordinance pro- 
viding for the adoption of the tax must be sub- 
mitted to a referendum; 

279. -- This is another one of the numerous speed 
limit bills that have been introduced at this session. 
It authorizes an increase of speed of five miles per 
hour for the various limits that are now assigned; 

. 283. This is a bill which provides for ten addi- 
tional Judges for the Superior Court of Cook County; 

284. This is a bill amending the Chicago Munici- 
pal Court Act so as to increase the fees for filing 
civil cases, and so as to add an additional fee of 
$8.00 for filing a written demand for a jury trial. 
Necessarily this will have to be submitted to a 
referendum; 

285. This is a bill calling for the making of a 



budget for each calendar year by the Sanitary Dis- 
trict Trustees; 

287. Another bill amending the Municipal Court 
Act to increase the fees, practically the same as 
Senate Bill 284 mentioned above; 

288. Amends Section 8 of the Municipal Court 
Act. It is designed to fix the Judges salaries at $10,- 
OOO.OO a year; 

289. Amendment of Municipal Court Act which 
increases the number of associate judges from 36 
to 45. This, like all other Municipal Court Act 
amendments, must be submitted to a referendum; 

290. Amendment of the Municipal Court Act 
which is designed to extend the criminal jurisdic- 
tion of that court so that it will have jurisdiction 
in all criminal cases except rape, murder, treason, 
robbery with gun, kidnapping for ransom, arson 
where death occurs, and other crimes in which 
the maximum punishment may be by life imprison- 
ment; 

293. This is a bill designed to regulate the 
Civil Service in Cook County; 

294. Amends the Local Improvement Act so as 
to provide for excess condemnation. This will affect 
only down state cities because the City of Chicago 
already has the power; 

296. This provides for the licensing and regula- 
tion of undertakers to be under the control of the 
Department of Registration and Education. It may 
affect the City's revenues to the extent that it now 
receives license fees from undertakers; 

301. City Manager Bill. This bill would provide 
for council-manager form of municipal government 
for all cities in the state when the city shall vote 
thereon and adopt it by referendum. It is practical- 
ly the same proposition that now exists with respect 
to the smaller cities which may now adopt the city 
manager form of government; 

302. Motor Bus Tax Bill. This imposes a tax on 
motor busses using the public highways of the 
State, carrying passengers or property for hire; 

310. County Dance Hall Bill. This is designed 
to give County Commissioners authority to regulate 
dance halls outside of the limits of cities and vil- 
lages; 

321. An amendment to Section 59 of the Roads 
and Bridges Act, which provides that the Commis- 
sioners of any township or road district may col- 
lect money for roads and bridges in such districts 
for the improvement of roads and streets within 
cities and villages, but when such money is so 
spent it shall be with the consent of such city or 
village authorities; 

325 This is another bill for the regulation or 
sale of kerosene, gasoline, naphtha, etc. It is not 
desirable that this bill should pass because it pro- 
vides for having this regulation under the control 
of the State Department of Finance, and if it is 
taken out of the hands of the city authorities it will 
mean a loss of approximately $3501,000.00; 

328. Creates a State bureau of criminal identi- 
fication and investigation. This bill may be objec- 
tionable to the Commissioner of Police by reason 
of the duplication of efforts with the city's bureau 
of identification; 

329 to 335 inclusive. These are the seven traction 
bills that have been submitted under the direction 
of the City Council. It is not necessary at this time 
to make extended comment on these bills since 



16 



JOURNAI^-CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO. 



April 18, 1929. 



they have been discussed at length in the meetings 
of the Committee on Lqcal Transportation and by 
the various members of the City Council that are 
interested in them; 

340'. Tax revision bill. This bill is the outcome 
of the labors of the Tax Commission appointed by 
Governor Small; It is designed to combine the 
various revenue laws of the state and make one 
complete revenue act governing the assessment and 
collection of taxes. We have not fully examined the 
bill but so far as we can see there are no radical 
changes from the present system of assessing and 
collecting taxes. 

344. This is a bill which will do away with the 
holding of daily sessions by the Board of Local 
Improvements, and will require that body to hold 
regular and special meetings only as it may deter- 
mine from time to time. 

HOUSE BILLS. 

427. This bill amends Sections 5 and 7 of part 
2 of article 12 of the Cities and Villages Act. This 
article is some times spoken of as the little charter. 
It permits the Comptroller to advertise for bids for 
the deposit of city money in banks outside of the 
city; it also amends the provision which says that 
all money must be withdrawn by warrant for each 
item, duly authorizing the money to be withdrawn 
in accordance with the ordinance of the City of 
Chicago; 

The bill also provides that the Corporation Coun- 
sel shall be the legal advisor of the City Council 
and the various departments, but shall appear only 
if so directed by the City Council in case an officer 
is sued personally; 

433. This bill amends the State Dog Licensing 
Act, and will probably not affect the city. It must 
be watched, however, because the city is interested 
in the dog license fee, and a slip might deprive the 
city of this; 

437. An amendment of the Public Utilities Act 
which would give the city the right to demand grade 
separations at railroad crossings, the cost of which 
should be borne, 40% by the State, 10% by the 
municipality and 50% by the railroad company; 

445. This bill is aimed to prohibit the soliciting 
of business of reducing special assessments or other 
forms of special taxation; 

449. This bill is one of the numerous bills intro- 
duced regarding publication of quarterly statements 
showing receipts and expenditures, with names, ad- 
dresses, etc. It would apply to the City of Chicago 
and be a large expense to the City. 

453. This is a city bill, amending Sections 1, 5 
and 6 of part 4 of article 12 of the Cities and Vil- 
lages Act. It provides that Aldermen in Chicago 
shall serve for four years, subject to a recall on 
petition after eighteen months of service; 

458. This bill provides for the appointment of 
trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago by the 
Governor. It is one of several bills, having the 
same import, which have been introduced; 

468. Provides for the registration of funeral 
directors by the State Department of Registration 
and Education. It will probably deprive the city 
of the revenue from the undertakers licenses; 

470. Terminals on rivers. This bill authorizes 
the Department of Purchases and Construction to 
construct or acquire terminals on rivers to connect 
river and railway common carriers, and to do cer- 



tain other things in connection therewith. A city 
or village may convey land to the said department 
for this purpose, or may lease existing terminals to 
water carriers; 

479. Excess condemnation for down state cities. 
The City of Chicago is not interested in this bill 
since it already has the same power which this bill 
designs to give to down state cities; 

493. An amendment to Section 6 of the Local 
Improvement Act so that sessions shall be held as 
the Board may determine for the transaction of 
business instead of daily sessions as now required; 

494. Authorizes the assessors, or a member of the 
board of review to obtain an order of court for the 
opening of safety deposit boxes in order to determine 
whether taxable property is contained therein; 

495. This enlarges the present municipal owner- 
ship of utilities act by providing that the City may, 
without a referendum, sell electricity purchased by 
it; 

496. This is also an amendment of the public 
utility act of 1921, and is designed to except per- 
sons and corporations from the operation of that 
act when they sell and deliver light, heat, coal, water 
or electrical energy to municipalities, or to munici- 
pal utilities for re-sale; 

'50'4. Cutting of streets by public utilities. This 
bill is designed to give the city greater power in 
cases where the utility corporations cut, excavate or 
otherwise damage hard surface streets. It may com- 
pel them to lay conduits in alleys, and to do other 
things in order to reduce the cost of repairing the 
streets'; 

509 to 515. These are the traction bills of which 
the City Council already has knowledge; 

520. Amends the ticket scalping law by adding 
a section which makes it the duty of the States At- 
torney to enforce this act, and provides that he is 
guilty of malfeasance in office if he fails or refuses 
to do so. 

Copies of the above bills are forwarded to you

The sand or limestone screenings used in making 
the mixture for the binder course and the sand used 
in making the mixture for the wearing course shall 
be clean, hard-grained, free from foreign matter, 
and so graded that all of said sand or limestone 
screenings can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and so 
that not more than six (6) per cent can be held on 
a ten (10) mesh sieve and so that not less than 
eight (8) per cent nor more than twenty-five (25) 
per cent can pass a ten (10) mesh sieve and be 
held on a forty (40) mesh sieve, and so that not 
less than thirty (30) per cent nor more than fifty- 
six (56) per cent can pass a forty (40) mesh sieve 
and be held on an eighty (80) mesh sieve, and so 
that not less than twenty (20) per cent nor more 
than forty-five (45) per cent can pass an eighty 
(80) mesh sieve. 

The limestone or other stone equal thereto for 
binder mixture used in the mixture for the binder 
course shall be clean, broken, hard and durable, free 
from foreign matter and so graded that all can pass 
a ring of one and five-eighths (1%) inches inside 
diameter and ninety (90) per cent thereof can be 
held on a ring of one-fourth (%) inch inside di- 
ameter. 

Levigated stone shall be construed to mean, for 
the purpose of this ordinance, levigated limestone, 
other levigated stone equivalent to levigated lime- 
stone for paving purposes, Portland cement or the 
finely divided mineral matter self contained in the 
refined native solid asphalt. 

The refined asphalt used in making the asphalt 
cement for the mixture for the binder course and the 
mixture for the wearing course shall be obtained 
from crude, native solid asphalt, except as herein 
provided. If crude, native solid asphalt is used 
and requires refining, it shall be heated to a tem- 
perature of not over four hundred fifty (450) de- 
grees Fahrenheit until all water and light oils have 
been driven off. At least ninety-eight and one-half 
(98%) per cent of the bitumen contained in the 
said refined asphalt which is soluble in carbon 
disulphide shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. 

The refined asphalt used in making said asphalt 
cement may also be obtained by the straight reduc- 
tion of asphaltic petroleum until the refined as- 
phalt has a consistency not softer than seven (7) 
millimeters penetration and not harder than two 
and one-half (2%) millimeters penetration, the 
penetration being made with a No. 2 Needle, weighted 
with one hundred (100) grams acting for five (5) 
seconds on the material at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. Ninety-eight and 
one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (5y2) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is 
held at a temperature of three hundred twenty-five 
(325) degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then 
it shall have lost not over two (2) per cent by 
weight and the penetration of the residue thus ob- 
tained shall be not less than one-half (%) of the 
penetration before such heating, said penetration 
being determined as herein prescribed. The said 
refined asphalt shall have a ductility of not less 
than sixty (60) centimeters at five (5) millimeters 
penetration determined as herein prescribed, said 
ductility being determined by elongating a briquette, 
Dow form, of said refined asphalt at a uniform rate 
of five (5) centimeters per minute at a temperature 
of seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 



The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the refined asphalt to be 
used. At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said 
fiux shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. 
The flux shall have a specific gravity of not less 
than ninety-four one-hundredths (.94) and not 
more than one and ten one-hundredths (1.10) at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit as com- 
pared with water at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit, and when tested in a Cleveland Open 
Cup Oil Tester, it shall not fiash below a tempera- 
ture of three hundred eighty (380) degrees Fah- 
renheit and when fifty (50) grams of the said flux 
is heated in an uncovered tin bpx five and one-half 
(5%) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
not have lost over three (3) per cent by weight. 
The flux shall have a penetration of not less than 
thirty-five (35) millimeters, the penetration being 
made with a No. 2 needle weighted with fifty (50) 
grams acting for one (1) second, the material being 
tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The asphalt cement used in the binder course and 
in the wearing course shall be made from one (1) 
of said refined asphalts or from a mixture of any 
two (2) of said refined asphalts and said fiux, if flux 
must be used, provided that the mixture of refined 
asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of the 
refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt cement 
shall contain not less than sixty (60) per cent by 
weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The said 
asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and heat- 
ing the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the said 
flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than two 
hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2%) millimeters and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered 
tin box five and one-half (5%) centimeters in di- 
ameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters in 
depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall have lost not more than 
three (3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, shall be not less 
than one-half of the penetration before such heat- 
ing. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said lime- 
stone, or other stone, the said sand or the said 
limestone screenings and the said asphalt cement. 
The said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) 
per cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said 
limestone; or other stone. The said mixture shall be 
spread on the said concrete foundation, and while 
in a hot and plastic condition shall be rolled to an 
even surface with a self-propelled roller weighing 
not less than ten (10) tons. The said binder course 
after ultimate compression shall have a thickness

of two (2) inches, and the upper surface shall be 
parallel with and one and one-half (1%) inches 
below the upper surface of the finished pavement. 

The mixture for the wearing course shall be made , 
by intimately mixing, while hot, the said sand, the 
said asphalt cement and the said levigated stone. 
The said sand and the said asphalt cement shall be 
heated separately to a temperature of not less than 
three hundred (300) degrees Fahrenheit, and the 
said levigated stone shall be intimately mixed with 
the said sand and then both shall be intimately 
mixed with the said asphalt cement. The said mix- 
ture shall contain, by weight, bitumen soluble in 
carbon disulphide, eleven (11) per cent; said levi- 
gated stone fourteen (14) per cent; said sand which 
can pass an eighty (80) mesh sieve and cannot pass 
a two hundred (200) mesh sieve twenty-five (25) 
per cent; said sand which can pass a forty (40) 
mesh sieve and cannot pass an eighty (80) mesh 
sieve, thirty-six (36) per cent; said sand which can 
pass a ten (10) mesh sieve and cannot pass a forty 

(40) mesh sieve, twelve (12) per cent; said sand 
which can pass a four (4) mesh sieve and cannot 
pass a .ten (10) mesh sieve, two (2) per cent. The 
said mixture shall be spread at a temperature of 
not less than two hundred sixty (260) degrees 
Fahrenheit to an even surface and to such a depth 
that after ultimate compression, it shall have a 
thickness of one and one-half (1%) inches. The 
wearing course, while still hot and plastic, shall be 
rolled with a self-propelled roller weighing not less 
than ten (10) tons. Natural hydraulic cement shall 
then be spread over the wearing course in such 
quantity that one (1) barrel of natural hydraulic 
cement shall cover one thousand (1000) square yards 
of said wearing course. The said wearing course 
shall then be thoroughly compressed by rolling with 

a self-propelled roller weighing not less than ten 

(10) tons.

takes an oath to faithfully execute the office of Presi- 
dent, but that oath provides further that he will, to 
the best of his ability preserve, protect, and defend 
the Constitution of the United States"; and 

Whereas, The President has informed interested 
citizens "that opportunity will be given for the pre- 
sentation of any facts which bear upon enforcement 
of the eighteenth amendment, or any other of our 
laws"; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chicago 
believes with the President in obedience to the laws 
of our country and honest enforcement of all the 
amendments to the Constitution; therefore be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, representing three millions of America's 
proud and most loyal citizens, approves the appoint- 
ment of a commission as proposed by the President 
of the United States and hereby respectfully requests

pointed to investigate the non-enforcement of the

Endorsement of House BiU No. 13, Providing for a 
Referendum on the Question of the Repeal of 

the Search and Seizure Act. '' 

Alderman Toman presented the following resolution: 

Whereas, Repeated tests have disclosed that the 
majority of the people of the State of Illinois are 
opposed to the enforcement of the Volstead Act; and 

Whereas, The moral sense of the community is 
not in favor, but rather against the enforcement of 
the Volstead Act, evasion of the law is generally re-

garded as in nowise an unworthy act, the system 
prevailing at the present time for its enforcement is 
wholly demoralizing and disposes most of the people 
to attach no importance to the law; and 

Whereas, In the killing of a woman in her own 
home during a prohibition enforcement raid at 
Aurora, Illinois, enforcement is writing an ugly 
record for itself and is becoming both a travesty and 
a tragedy; and 

Whereas, There is pending in the House of Repre- 
sentatives of the Illinois Legislature, House Bill No. 
13, providing that a referendum be held throughout 
the State on the question of whether the prohibition 
enforcement act of June 27, 1921, and the search and 
seizure act of June 21, 1919, shall be repealed; and 

Whereas, On the question of public policy sub- 
mitted to the electorate of the State of Illinois on 
November 7, 1922, 1,065,242 voters cast their ballots 
in favor of beer and light wines for home con- 
sumption, and 512,111 votes were cast against such 
question of public policy; and 

Whereas, On the question of public policy sub- 
mitted to the voters of the State of Illinois on 
November 2, 1926, requesting Congress to change the 
present narrow, senseless definition of what consti- 
tutes an intoxicating beverage as set forth in the 
Volstead Act, to the end that there may be permitted 
the manufacture and sale of light wines and beer in 
accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, 
840,631 voters voted in favor of such question of 
public policy, and 556,592 voters cast their ballots 
against the same; and 

Whereas, A state-wide referendum held in Wis- 
consin at the election of April 2, 1929, resulted in a 
huge majority of 150,000 votes being cast in favor 
of repealing the state prohibition enforcement law, 
and a majority of 110,583 votes in favor of discard- 
ing or removing penalties on the manufacture of 
2.75% alcoholic beer, thus making Wisconsin the 
fifth state to take its place in the growing revolt 
against the Volstead Act, alongside of New York, 
Montana and Nevada, which have repealed state en- 
forcement laws, and with Maryland which never 
passed one; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago hereby memoralizes the Fifty-sixth General 
Assembly of the State of Illinois to pass House Bill 
No. 13, providing for a state-wide referendum on. 
the question of repealing the Illinois state prohi- 
bition enforcement act of June 27, 1921, and the 
search and seizure act of June 21, 1919; and, be it 
further 

Resolved, That the City Clerk be and he is hereby 
directed to send a certified copy of this resolution 
to the State Senate and House of Representatives at 
present convened in biennial session at the State 
Capitol at Springfield, Illinois. 

Unanimous consent was given to permit action on

WHEREAS, The last session of the Congress of the 
United States had before it for consideration a bill 
known as the "Rogers Hospital Construction Bill , 
providing for additional hospital facilities for near- 
ly 4,000' tubercular and mentally-afflicted veterans; 
and 

Whereas, On the plea of economy, this- bill failed 
to carry, thus leaving these thousands of veterans 
without any means or hope to attain recovery; and 
WHEREAS, The same Congress voted millions of 
dollars for other purposes without regard to the 
necessity of economy, including the sum of $7,875,- 
000.00 for the purchase of shelter for wild fowl; 
therefore be it 

Resolved, That this body does not consider the 
conservation of wild birds as important as the con- 
servation of human life; that this body does not 
consider it economy to refuse hospital care for the 
nation's defenders; and be it further 

Resolved, That we are in hearty accord with the 
aims and purposes of the protest mass meeting to 
be held under the auspices of the Cook County 
Council of the American Legion, Friday noon, May

In the Matter of the Designation of Certain Streets 
as "State-aid" Roads. 

Alderman Massen presented the following resolution, 
which was ordered published and referred to the Com- 
mittee on Traffic Regulation and Public Safety: 

Whereas, The Governor of the State of Illinois 
has publicly indicated that he will interpose no 
objection to the utilization of a part of the gasoline 
tax for the improvement of traffic conditions in the 
City of Chicago through the improvement and/or 
extension of streets within the City as State-aid 
roads when and if properly designated as such in 
conformity with the Act entitled "An Act in relation 
to a tax upon the privilege of operating motor vehi- 
cles upon the public highways, based upon the con- 
sumption of motor fuel therein, and making certain 
appropriations in connection therewith"; and 

Whereas, There are major and radial traction 
streets in the City of Chicago which connect with 
highways entering the City from beyond and which 
are, in consequence, a part of the highway system 
of the State of Illinois; and 

Whereas, Many streets in the City of Chicago are 
incapable of a maximum'traffic use because they are 
lacking in continuity and these streets would, if im- 
proved, connected up and/or extended, facilitate 
heavy traffic movements both intra-city and inter- 
city in character; and 

Whereas, The designation of carefully selected 
streets within the City of Chicago as State-aid roads 
and the improvement and/or extension and the 
maintenance of such streets as State-aid roads will 
relieve traffic congestion in the City of Chicago, will 



diminish the tremendous economic loss suffered by 
the City as the result of such traffic congestion and 
will operate to expedite the movement of vehicular 
traffic in the City of Chicago and to expedite the 
movement of vehicular traffic to and from the City 
and points in the surrounding area; now, therefore. 

Be it, by the City Council of the City of Chicago, 
Resolved: 

1. That those streets located in the City of Chi- 
cago which, from a traffic standpoint, it is desirable 
to designate as State-aid roads be determined and 
that, when determined, such streets be designated as 
State-aid roads in conformity with the provisions 
of the Act aforesaid and maintained as such; 

2. That the Chicago Association of Commerce be, 
and it is hereby requested to co-operate with the 
Committee on Traffic Regulation and Public Safety 
in making such a survey of traffic conditions as may 
be required in order that those streets in the City 
of Chicago which it is desirable to designate as 
State-aid roads as aforesaid may be determined; 

3. That the Board of County Commissioners of 
Cook County be and it is hereby requested to co- 
operate in making the survey aforesaid; 

4. That the survey aforesaid, when completed, be 
submitted to the City Council for consideration and 
action and that, in the event such survey and the 
recommendations predicated thereon be approved by 
the City Council, the Board of County Commissioners 
of Cook County proceed under the Act aforesaid to 
designate streets within the City of Chicago as State- 
aid roads in conformity therewith; and 

5. That the Committee on Traffic Regulation and 
Public Safety be and it is hereby authorized and 
directed to proceed as it may determine in con- 
formity herewith.

During the three months ending March 31st 4,907 



tons of garbage were received and disposed of by the 
Municipal Reduction Plant, as compared with 18,323 
tons during the corresponding months of 1928, a 
decrease of 13,416 tons, or 73 per cent. During the 
same period 33 cars, containing 995 tons of refuse, 
were shipped to McCook, Illinois, for disposal. 

The amount of garbage grease produced during 
January, February and March totaled 338,020 pounds, 
as compared with 1,185,110 pounds for the same 
period of 1928, a decrease of 847,090 pounds, or 71 
per cent. The amount of garbage tankage produced 
during the first quarter of 1929 totaled 902.35 tons,

duction Plant, including repairs and the disposal oT 
rubbish, during the first quarter of 1929 was $81,-

responding period of 1928, a decrease of $28,210.30. 
The net cost of operation of $81,319.74 is not charge- 
able entirely to the small amount of garbage dis- 
posed of, as these figures include $18,715.00 paid in 
salaries and wages to plant mechanics for mainte- 
nance and renewals, $3,535.00 for repairs and re- 
newals by contract or open order, $5,070.00 for va- 
cation pay allowed to garbage handlers in accord- 
-ance with the vacation ordinance, and a super- 
visory and operating organization of monthly paid 
employes based on handling a minimum of 150 tons 
of garbage per day, whereas the average daily re- 
ceipts amounted to only 64 tons. This low average 
was partly due to the severe weather conditions ex- 
isting during January and February. 

During the three months ending March 31st the 
reduction plant did not operate on thirty-two days, 
exclusive of Sundays a>nd holidays, as the amount of 
material received for disposal did not warrant full 
time operation. »

596. This bill seeks to prohibit railroad com- 
panies or street railway companies from operating 
trains of more than two coaches in cities of 500,000

one-half (98%) per cent of the said refined asphalt, 
so obtained, shall be soluble in cold carbon tetra 
chloride. When fifty (50) grams of said refined 
asphalt is heated in an uncovered tin box five and 
one-half (5%) centimeters in diameter and three 
and one-half (3%) centimeters in depth and is held 
at a temperature of three hundred twenty-flye (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall 
have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
be not less than one-half {V2) of the penetration 
before such heating, said penetration being deter- 
mined as herein prescribed. The said refined asphalt 
shall have a ductility of not less than sixty (60) 
■centimeters at five (5) millimeters penetration de- 
termined as herein prescribed, said ductility being 
determined by elongating a briquette, Dow form, of 
said refined asphalt at a uniform rate of five (5) 
centimeters per minute at a temperature of seventy- 
seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit. 

The flux used in making the asphalt cement shall 
be the residuum obtained by the straight reduction 
of crude petroleum, which flux shall be tested with 
and found suitable to the reflned asphalt to be used. 
At least ninety-nine (99) per cent of said flux shall 
be soluble in cold carbon tetra chloride. The flux 
shall have a specific gravity of not less than ninety- 
four one-hundredths (.94) and not more than one

(77) degrees Fahrenheit as compared with water at 
seventy-seven (77) degrees Fahrenheit, and when 
tested in a Cleveland Open Cup Oil Tester, it shall 
not flash below a temperature of three hundred 
eighty (380) degrees Fahrenheit; and when fifty 
(50) grams of the said flux is heated in an uncovered 
tin box Ave and one-half (5%) centimeters in 
diameter and three and one-half (3%) centimeters 
in depth and is held at a temperature of three hun- 
dred twenty-five (325) degrees Fahrenheit for five 
(5) hours, then it shall not have lost over three (3) 
per cent by weight. The flux shall have a penetra- 
tion of not less than thirty-flve (35) millimeters, the 
penetration being made with a No. 2 needle weighted 
with fifty (50) grams acting for one (1) second, the 
material being tested at seventy-seven (77) degrees

flux must be used, provided that the mixture of re- 
fined asphalts shall contain equal parts of each of 
the refined asphalts, and that the said asphalt 
cement shall contain not less than sixty (60) per 
cent by weight of refined asphalt or asphalts. The 
said asphalt cement shall be made by mixing and 
heating the said refined asphalt or asphalts and the 
said flux in a kettle at a temperature not lower than 
two hundred fifty (250) degrees Fahrenheit and not 
higher than three hundred fifty (350) degrees 
Fahrenheit. This mixture shall be thoroughly 
agitated when hot by steam, air or mechanical means 
until the said mixture has become homogeneous. 
The said asphalt cement shall have a penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, of not less than 
two and one-half (2%) millimetel-s and not more 
than seven (7) millimeters. When fifty (50) grams 
of said asphalt cement is heated in an uncovered

(5) hours, then it shall have lost not more than 
three (3) per cent by weight, and the penetration, 
determined as herein prescribed, shall be not less 



than one-half (%) of the penetration before such 
heating. A briquette, Dow form, of the said asphalt 
cement of the consistency as used in this improve- 
ment shall have a ductility, determined as herein 
prescribed, of not less than twenty (20) centimeters. 

The mixture for the binder course shall be made 
by heating and intimately mixing the said lime- 
stone, or other stone, the said sand or the said lime- 
stone screenings and the said asphalt cement. The 
said mixture shall contain by weight five (5) per 
cent of bitumen soluble in carbon disulphide; 
twenty-five (25) per cent of said sand or said lime- 
stone screenings and seventy (70) per cent of said
